Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole


Traditional sweet potato casserole brings a pile of unnecessary sugar and fat to the table.

Weighing in under 210 calories, it's a casserole you can enjoy a heaping scoop of without any unpalatable guilt.


The flavor is familiar, but this recipe is fresh, new, and easy to follow. If you're ready to plan a lighter Thanksgiving dinner that everyone will still enjoy, then keep reading for the comforting side dish recipe.

Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  2. 1/3 cup honey
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  6. 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  8. 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  9. 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  10. Cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mist an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pot with a large steamer basket in place. Put the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and let cool slightly. Add the honey, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whip with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over the potatoes. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.
  5. Serves 6.
